Well, I've just come back from the shops. First stop the local supermarket, where I explained to the staff member at the door that I suffer from asthma and wasn't happy about wearing a mask. They were absolutely fine with that, so I wandered in, did my shopping and left. All staff were very friendly, although the store seemed to have a strange atmosphere - perhaps just my paranoia! Other shoppers seemed to just ignore me. Interesting to note that most people only put their mask on as they went in through the entrance door and took it off again immediately on exiting.
Then I went on to a shop selling greetings cards, and was warmly welcomed by the owner. He told me that he also suffered with asthma and having spent ten minutes with a mask on earlier, he was feeling a bit woozy. Found a card, paid and left, thanking the owner for his hospitality.

Interesting comment by Jim Corr on this lady's account of her trip :
"I salute your bravery. Non-compliance is obligatory at this stage. We must fight to uphold our freedoms."
Yes, that is the same Jim Corr who co-founded the popular band "The Corrs", and who is now vocal in his opposition to the injustices being perpretrated by the response to the "plandemic" amongst other things.
Side note, one of my happiest memories of fatherhood was taking my two young daughters on a surprise trip to the Birminham NEC to see The Corrs perfom. They were outstanding! Seems like a good moment to post one of their songs:
